Dereliction of duty

Kamboj had sealed six stone crushers — Mahavir Stone Crusher, Gill Stone Crusher, Kalgidhar Stone Crusher, Guru Stone Crusher, New Satluj Stone Crusher and Gurinder Doaba Stone Crusher — after the unit owners failed to present relevant documents relating to storage of a large quantity of extracted material with them.
According to the suspension letter, Kamboj had been suspended with immediate effect and a charge-sheet would follow.
According to sources, action over dereliction of duty had been taken for not following the directions of the National Green Tribunal.
